Catching Up - The Splendid Sampler Sew Along

The month of March was interesting to say the least and has flown by! The last post was for block 5 of The Splendid Sampler Sew Along. I was not able to keep up with blocks 6 through 12 but will post the links below. Just click on each pic to download your patterns, get tips and maybe a bonus or two.

I spent today working on block 13, Scrap Stars. I'm continuing to forge ahead in the three colorways I used previously as you can see in the picture below. Each block timed out at approximately 1 hour. I admit that I struggled a little with the first block but then found my stride with the other two. This block is definitely not a beginner block and I think the instructions could have been just a little clearer. All told, I do like the way they turned out. You can download the pattern by clicking on the photo collage of my blocks.

Thy Word is Truth - Teach Us to Number Our Days

The past few weeks have brought this verse home to me! We have no idea when we will take our last breath nor when our heart will beat for the last time. Our days are shorter than we realize and we are wise when we understand this truth.

I believe that we need to embrace those we love because it may very well be the last opportunity we have to do so. We need to be quick to forgive those who may have hurt us and restore our relationships as quickly as possible so long as it is possible. Let's not sweat the small stuff and enjoy each day to its fullest. Thank God for His love, and forgiveness and take great joy in our relationship with Him.

As I look forward to this Passion week, I am so thankful that Jesus loved us so much that He would suffer and die a cruel death on the cross. Spend time this week reflecting on the overwhelming love of Jesus.

Thy Word is Truth - Honor Thy Father and Mother

The older I get, the more I realize the importance of family. I have had many friends and acquaintances over the years and although I am a grown woman, married, mother and grandmother, my parents become more and more important to me as time goes on.

I have been watching my mother struggle for some time now. She has been hospitalized since March 1st and is finally improving somewhat. I praise God for allowing her to be in good hands now with a team of doctors that truly care about her and are working around the clock to get her back to good health.

My father has told me how much he appreciates that I have been with him and with my mom. It is an overwhelming situation for them both and it has truly been my honor to be available for them.

Mom and Dad...I honor you both. You are loved more than any words express.

I must sincerely recognize my husband! He has been completely understanding that right now I need to be with my parents. We haven't seen one another since March 3rd and he too feels that my place is with my parents. Thank you for your support! I love you!!!
